Ok, I've predicted (almost guaranteed) for months that the Mavs would be long gone by either the first or second playoff series. I was wrong. Dead wrong. They sweep the Lakers by winning four games in a row which only makes sense if you consider an unthinkable tsunami in Japan, a an unthinkable tornado in Alabama, Osama being captured, and Obama being elected. (Audience pandering on that last one.)
That 2012 guy might be right.
(But, man, Dallas could have launched a shot while being water-boarded and it would have gone in today.)
